disposal of used batteries
The following note is intended for those who use batteries or products with built-in batteries and do not resell them in the form supplied to them (end users):
1. Free return of used batteries
Batteries must not be disposed of with household waste. You are legally obliged to return used batteries, so that a proper disposal can be guaranteed. You can hand over used batteries at a municipal collection point or at a local retailer. We are also obliged as a distributor of batteries for the return of waste batteries, with our obligation to take back to old batteries of the kind that we have as new batteries in our range or have led. Old batteries of the aforementioned kind can therefore either be returned to us in sufficient prepaid postage or handed over directly to our dispatch warehouse at the following address free of charge:
2. Meaning of the battery symbols
Batteries are marked with the symbol of a crossed-out wheelie bin (see below). This symbol indicates that batteries should not be disposed of with household waste. For batteries containing more than 0.0005% by mass of mercury, more than 0.002% by mass of cadmium or more than 0.004% by mass of lead, below the garbage can symbol is the chemical name of the particular pollutant used - where "cd" stands for cadmium, "Pb "stands for lead, and" Hg "for mercury."
